To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations and thanks to the officers and members of the Savannah Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division (YLD) on the success of its recent golf tournament fundraiser.
As a result, the Savannah YLD was able to make a $5,000 donation to the Mediation Center of the Coastal Empire’s Family Resource Center. The gift will benefit the center’s guardian ad litem program, which provides representation for the interests of children in domestic and civil legal actions.
We salute Savannah YLD President Philip Thompson and President-Elect Kate Lawson Smith for their leadership on this project. Success stories like this are inspiring examples of the great work being carried out by lawyers throughout Georgia in service to the public, the legal profession and the justice system.
